AMD Launches the ATI 4600 Series Mobile GPU
Oops! It looks like someone at Asus might have gotten an itchy trigger finger and pushed the button on sending out the press release for the ASUS N81Vp and N51Tp notebooks a couple of days early. The press release came out on Wednesday, January 7th, and it exclaimed, "ASUS Introduces World’s First Notebook Solutions with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4600 Series GPU." All true and great for Asus, but the only problem is that AMD (ATI's parent company) had embargoed the information about the new ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4000 Series until one minute after midnight, Eastern Time, Friday, January 9th (not coincidentally the exact date and time this news post was published). Well, the embargo has finally lifted and we're now free to tell you (we're nice that way) about the new ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4000 Series of GPUs for notebooks...
